Packing for Vacation « All About Romance’s News & Commentary Blog…]]>
xina: At my cabin, I am all alone with my dogs. Heaven….and much reading time.
I envy you there, xina. Yes, if I had someplace like that to be able to go to occasionally, books would definitely be part of the baggage. But then that’s an entirely different get-away than one where you are on the go most of the time. On trips, I found my focus to be too vulnerable for reading, so I began taking books that didn’t require much of a one—more of a quickie read. And then I thought, I wouldn’t read those at home, why bother with them on the road. They were so forgettable and usually “dumb.” So I quit bothering and began to enjoy the time away differently than when I’m home. I can always read when I return.]]>
Tee: Once more out of the loop, but I don’t pack books anymore when I go on vacation. I find I usually don’t have the time to read. We go to different locations and I’m all into the new stuff. When I used to bring the books, they would go back home with me unread. Since then, I’ve learned my lesson. No books while I’m away enjoying the new sights.
I agree with you Tee. When I go somewhere (other than my cabin) I rarely have time to read. Unless I am on a beach or on a cruise, I am out and about. At my cabin, I am all alone with my dogs. Heaven….and much reading time.]]>
